...we sure tried to keep busy this break and ended with a flourish, hitting the zoo with Amy and Betsey on Thursday, Spring Training baseball Friday, yesterday, party at Betsey and Brian's and today, Old Tucson Movie Studios, with the help of Jaimelyn and Scott Thomas (Jaimelyn and I work together at Barnes & Noble, where they have been holding down the fort for me over the last two weeks! And Scott was a long time stunt man over at OT, until recently, but came through with some passes today!).
It was an incredible day, temps in the mid-70's - we started by going to church and then, what a surprise, to Viro's.
Lena, Nick, Erica and Nikki are always so friendly and helpful! Nick is an A.C. Milan fan, but I do not hold it against him - he makes a good sandwich! Nikki has assumed omelet duties from Christina and made some awesome omelets this morning for us - Cody had two, as usual! Erica made me another, high octane, cappuccino! Lena always helps clear the plethora of plates the bambini accumulate (and, she makes a great cappuccino, too!).
Asuzanna brings out more delicious food from Rosa's kitchen! She is non-stop!!
I forgot to take a picture of the amazing buffett - next week! You can catch a glimpse of their homemade gelato in the case behind Vito - You can not find it anywhere with the homemade taste that Viro's has! And as great as the food at Viro's is, the people are what make it so special...
With our bellies full, we picked up Betsey, Brian, Hadley, Mitch, Amy, Tom and Alex and headed to Old Tucson.
It was a good day...and a nice end to Spring Break...I guess all breaks must come to an end and we sure made a lot of great memories together over this break! I return to work tomorrow, tanned, rested and ready! Well, maybe not rested - I was telling Jaimelyn today, it is great to spend so much time with the bambini's, but, as Kim and I always used to joke - there are no breaks or lunches - it is full steam ahead from dawn to midnight!!
But it really helped being off with these guys and thank you to all of you who made this a wonderful, healing, Spring Break for our family!!!
